It has been a little quiet here over the last week as a well-earned vacation was in order. Sure, there are a slew of films that I probably should be seeing and discussing this summer, but it was important to squeeze in some family time prior to the fall film festival season kicking into gear.

Romero’s place in cinema will always be etched in stone. Not because he founded the subgenre of zombie movies but he did so much more. They had some social commentary about the world and were willing to confront them. Plus, he is kind of the father of the midnight movies and a forefather of independent cinema. The world owes him a great debt.
